Our Condolences to Patrick Meeker From Ability Products

“It is with my deepest regret to have to inform you that on June 17, 2020, a dear friend within our industry Patrick A. Meeker, age 52, passed away suddenly. Patrick was a friend and colleague of mine and this news was very difficult to comprehend. In the past few months, Patrick and I were able to work very closely to establish a relationship with Ability Products, the company Patrick was moving forward in our industry and is contracted with U.S. Rehab/VGM. We were blessed to be involved with such a professional and intelligent businessman in Patrick. He had a renewed, focused effort to make this company successful, and with that, we were working on marketing efforts for the company. I wanted to profess the following podcast we had taped just a few days prior to his passing. I wanted to make sure that what Patrick worked so hard to develop was released and used to help understand how professional and energetic he was for this industry. Patrick’s passion was second to none and I will miss him, and I can guarantee you all, we as an industry will miss Patrick and his always positive and focused mentality. I pray the family is comforted and that we recognize Patrick as one of the key friends of this very powerful industry in custom rehab technology.”
